I am new here so please tell me if this should be elsewhere My grandfather, Douglas Scott worked in the St. Louis Hawken shop, shot for competitions, hunting, and sport, and built some guns independently. (in St. Louis, although during the early to mid 70s he did live in Arizona) He died about 3-4 weeks prior to this post. His last day was one of joy and was the happiest Ive ever seen him. He was finally released from a hospital into an assisted living facility and he enjoyed having people to talk to and nurses to take care of him. He died his first night in the facility. If anyone on this forum knew him or owns or owned any guns he made, you are welcome to share stories or talk about the gun(s).
